The low season for Gallura does not exist, or at least not for its nautical district that even in May has confirmed itself as a source of great tourist attraction internationally. Driving the sector is certainly the Costa Smeralda and Porto Rotondo, for years at the center of the interest of the owners of the largest and most luxurious boats in the world, who in these days in Costa have brought their superyachts. You can see them moored in the roadstead, with their luxury cargo and high technology and a total value of at least one billion dollars.
According to the calculations of the Communication Service and Study Center of Cipnes in fact, in these last days of May the waters of the Costa Smeralda, the Cala di Volpe, the Romazzino, the Golfo Pevero and Porto Cervo, are hosting ten mega dream boats, whose owners are largely American investors, but there are also those from Ireland, from Monaco and Israel, all with assets worthy of being counted among the names of the Forbes List. With its 63 meters and the value of 70 million dollars, the Artisan, super yacht built in Italy by the luxury brand Benetti, owned by Todd Chaffe, American famous for his investments in Netflix, Twitter and Yahoo, sails peacefully in the emerald waters.
Then there is Yalla, 73 meters, 80 million dollars in value, of an Egyptian investor. The American designer Tommy Hilfinger has also chosen the Costa Smeralda: his 62-meter-long super yacht Flag worth 45 million dollars has been spotted a few days ago at anchor. Then stands for its size, 95 meters, the Madsummer of the American investor Jeffrey Soffer: value 250 million dollars. And then the Better Place together with the Better Space, by Idan Ofer, owner of a share of Atletico Madrid. And again the Juice, 71 meters of luxury attributed to an American and the Koalha owned by Khaled Juffali, head of the largest private company in Saudi Arabia.
The Olivia O, 88 meters long, is instead attributable to an investor from Monaco, while the owner of the Christina O arrives from Ireland, which was previously owned by Aristotle Onassis who had been frequenting the Costa Smeralda since 1968. Right on the superyacht in the waters of Porto Cervo, Jacqueline, widow Kennedy, spent her honeymoon with the newlywed Onassis.
